This wonderful event effectively brings Turkey to Calgary, showcasing a rich cultural heritage while allowing visitors to sample fine Turkish cuisine from sumptuous kabobs to mouth-watering pastries. This year, like last, the Festival will be alive with the sights, sounds and aromas of Turkey. Visitors are encouraged not to come to the festival alone, but to bring their family, friends, and neighbors, too. Come and sample authentic Turkish food and pastries while enjoying original Turkish-style doner-kebab, adana- kebab, iskender kebab, shish-kebabs and famous pita-style sandwiches, along with gozleme pastry or kunefe and baklava with Turkish Tea or Turkish coffee.
The Festival will display Turkish art, folk dance, music and gourmet food, where visitors will get an opportunity to celebrate, learn, and savour Turkish hospitality, culture, heritage and cuisine.
Visitors will be able to browse and buy Turkish products, souvenirs and handcrafts, participate in activities for children, view many authentic demonstrations and performances, sample Turkish cuisine, and do much, much more at the Festival.
